RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A Fayetteville office will help state Republicans coordinate grassroots  election efforts in the fall, says  the chairman of the Republican Party.

 
Claude Pope was scheduled to be on hand at the opening of the office in Cumberland County. 
 
The office is located at 3035 Boone Trail Extension.
 
“Momentum continues to build for a strong election year for North Carolina Republicans. Our new office in Fayetteville continues to expand our reach across the state and will help us coordinate grassroots efforts in the area. Kay Hagan’s reelection campaign is clearly floundering, and with our new office in Fayetteville, the NCGOP is only growing stronger by the day," Pope said in a statement.
 
Cumberland County Republican Party Chair Linda Devore focused her comments on the U.S. Senate.
 
“It is great to have our Fayetteville Victory campaign office open for 2014. Volunteers in Cumberland County have been working hard for months, and having a large office space to work from will provide our candidates a good operating base and infrastructure for their campaigns. Cumberland County is a conservative community, and we look forward to electing good Republicans in November to take back the U.S. Senate, and keep our state red and on the road to recovery. It is a great time to be a Republican in North Carolina."

2016 Issue? Hillary Clinton Doubles Down On Gay Marriage Support PDF Print E-mail

NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is defending her embrace of gay marriage, denying in an interview that she declined to support it in the past for political reasons.

 
Clinton accuses National Public Radio's Terry Gross of "playing with my words" in a tense exchange during an interview broadcast Thursday.
 
Gross repeatedly asked Clinton whether she had changed her opinion on same-sex marriage or whether the public's evolving views on the subject allowed her to be supportive.
 
Clinton says it's, quote, "flat wrong" that she announced her support for political reasons. She says she has a strong record on the issue.
 
The former secretary of state backed gay marriage in 2013 after she left the State Department.
 
It followed President Barack Obama's announcement during the 2012 presidential campaign that he supported gay marriage.

GOP Seizes On Hillary Clinton Comment That She And Bill Were 'dead broke' After White House PDF Print E-mail

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton's family was "dead broke" and saddled with legal bills when she and her husband left the White House, the former first lady said in an interview that aired Monday.

 
Republicans immediately seized on the comment and said it demonstrated that Clinton, the Democratic Party's strongest contender for its 2016 presidential nomination, was out of touch.
 
"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt," Clinton told ABC News. "We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education. You know, it was not easy."
 
Since leaving the White House, former President Bill Clinton earned a fortune in speaking fees and Hillary Rodham Clinton represented New York in the Senate.
 
Hillary Rodham Clinton's Senate financial disclosure forms, filed for 2000, show assets between $781,000 and almost $1.8 million. The forms allow senators to report assets in broad ranges.
 
The same form, however, shows the Clintons owed between $2.3 million and $10.6 million in legal fees to four firms. Again, the forms allow senators to report debts in broad ranges.
 
The Clintons paid off their legal bills by 2004, according to Senate disclosure forms. And by 2009, when Hillary Rodham Clinton was preparing to join President Barack Obama's administration as secretary of state, the Clintons' wealth was somewhere between $10 million and $50 million.
 
Republicans quickly pounced.
 
"How out of touch is Hillary Clinton when 'dead broke' = mansions & massive speaking fees?" tweeted Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus.
 
Democrats leveled a similar charge against the GOP's wealthy 2012 presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.

RALEIGH, (AP) — A former John Edwards aide who was a key government witness against the 2008 Democratic presidential contender at his campaign finance trial has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and child abuse.

 
Court records show Andrew Young was arrested in Raleigh shortly before midnight Sunday and charged with impaired driving and misdemeanor child abuse. Young's 13-year-old son was with him, according to court records.
 
Young was released on a $2,000 secured bond.
 
In 2007, the married aide falsely claimed paternity of the baby Edwards fathered with a campaign videographer. Young testified at Edwards' 2012 trial that he took secret payments from two political donors to hide his boss' pregnant mistress.
 
Edwards was acquitted on one felony count, and the jury was unable to agree on a verdict on five other charges.
